Next generation research works across institutional boundaries, disciplines, even across language and culture. Grid and repository technologies both address these requirements, yet, they have - up to now - developed largely isolated from each other. The grid and the repository community can benefit greatly from a convergence of their respective technologies towards an integrated content- and context-aware e-Science infrastructure. This paper classifies interfaces between digital repositories and grid technologies on a storage, an object, and a service level; the potential opportunities; as well as respective activities to date.
